I’ve talked about the elf Poreless Putty Primer before, but I have not used it yet until now. This is what the elf Poreless Putty Primer looks like before I made dents in it. The appearance of the product looks ultra smooth upon opening the container. Here it is.

Here’s the elf Poreless Putty Primer after using it. The texture is really soft and smooth by appearance and touch. It’s super silky and elegant.

My Review on elf Poreless Putty Primer:

I’ve been playing with makeup primers, since I like how they make my skin appear smooth and flawless. I really need them at the moment. I’ve been going through an initial breakout from exfoliants. It’s been rough. I’m pulling through every single day. Primers have been great at making my makeup last longer than usual. Also, they have helped fill in fine lines and wrinkles. But also, other imperfections, such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and bumps.

This is going to be a review on the elf Poreless Putty Primer. At first, I was very wary about using this primer. It looked thick and felt thick to touch. I didn’t think my skin could handle this type of texture for long periods of time. So I bit the bullet and tried it for once. I’m very happy that I did. I liked it. It made my skin feel smooth, silky, and soft. It smoothed over fine lines and wrinkles wonderfully. I think this is the best makeup primer I’ve used so far. It doesn’t leave my skin oily. It’s not too thin. It’s not too thick in texture. My foundation looks way better with it on. It’s better than Smashbox Photofinish, NYX Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer, NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm, and elf Brightening Lavender Face Primer!

There’s one thing I learned about makeup primers while experimenting. You must make sure you completely remove them from your skin. If you don’t, you will breakout if you have skin that is prone to clogged pores. I’ll leave it at that and will show what products I use to prevent my skin from developing acne when using a face primer. As for the elf Poreless Putty Primer, it’s soooo worth it for the price! Try it out for yourself! This is my to-go-to face primer right now. It works!

Have you used elf Poreless Putty Primer before? If so, what did you think about it?

Review: elf Skincare & Makeup Part 2

My review on elf Skincare & Makeup from my HUGE elf Makeup & Skincare Haul Part 2 ~~ ENJOY! 😁

1. elf Makeup Remover Balm

This is my second makeup remover balm. The first one I tried is Physician’s Formula The Perfect Matcha 3-in-1 Melting Cleansing Balm. Between the two, Physician’s Formula is SO MUCH better! I didn’t like the elf Makeup Remover Balm at all. It’s not as elegant feeling. It also smells very bad. I still have it and haven’t used much of it. It’s just sitting there. I will try my best to use it up, but it’ll take some time. I wouldn’t recommend this makeup remover balm to anyone.

Would I buy again? NO.

2. elf Precision Liquid Eyeliner in Black

At first, I liked elf Precision Liquid Eyeliner. As I continued to use it, it’s meh. I mean, it looks good when first applied. The problem with this liquid eyeliner is that it peels off. It doesn’t last throughout the day. That’s a huge issue for me because I want my makeup to stay on when applied once, especially liquid eyeliner.

Would I buy again? Probably not.

3. elf Color Correcting Stick, Dark Circles

I did review on elf concealers already. GO HERE. My thoughts are still the same about this concealer. I didn’t like it. Next!

Would I buy again? Nah.

4. elf Liquid Matte Lipstick

This is a liquid matte lipstick. I’m not too big on matte lip products. They dry my lips out. And, I didn’t like this color that much (Tea Rose). It’s not for me. It doesn’t match my complexion color. I will not purchase this shade or any other shades ever again (dries my lips out). I wasn’t a big fan of it.

Would I buy again? No.

5. elf Marsh-Mellow Soothing Mask
